Title: Can we compare plant meristems with biological stem cells?
Post by: DaveRedTrousers on 25/06/2019 10:12:19
Meristem cells develop according to their close environment, into roots or shoots for example.

Stem cells may also be encouraged to develop into biological cells according to the medium in which they are cultivated in the laboratory.

Have physiologists only recently recognised the similarities between meristem and stem cells?
